Reactive Systems & Scaling Data Horizontally
13 MARCH (TUESDAY) | 18:30 – 21:30 BG TIME
QCLUB/QBALKON (17 HENRIK IBSEN STR., 5TH FLOOR)

Scaling Data Horizontally

A look into the challenges of building a scalable distributed application, and where the hidden difficulties lie. Modern frameworks have powerful support for building stateless architectures and have moved the challenge away from local instance problems into wide-scale data segregation and management.

 

Reactiveness as a Way of Thinking About Systems

In his talk Zdravko will explore the meaning behind the concept of “Reactive Systems” and how thinking in these terms can help us when designing and architecting modern software. Software systems operate in the physical world. Zdravko will look at what challenges this brings and how we can achieve reactive properties within the constraints of the real world. Along the way he will delve into different software development concepts that can naturally be used together to help accomplish the ultimate goal – a responsive system.
